The Urbanists

Advice and support for payroll, outsourced management accounting, annual tax returns, taxation strategy and commercial advice.

We used KTS Owens Thomas to successfully exit the partnership we were in

The Urbanists LLP are today a successful planning and design consultancy based in Cardiff.  When they first came to us they were part of a substantial and well-established architectural practice with plans for growth. Main partners of the Urbanists LLP felt the organisation’s future sustainability and growth lay in their ability to stand alone from the architectural practice partnership. In order for The Urbanists exit the Limited Liability Partnership to pursue and deliver a strategy of development and growth we:

  • advised main partners of the Urbanists on viability of an exit and worked very closely with them in negotiating an exit from the architectural practice
  • prepared a business plan and financial model that enabled them to secure funding to facilitate the exit
  • advised on a suitable vehicle and structure for delivering planned development and growth (following exit)
  • advised on implementation of an internal financial reporting system and tax effective remuneration strategies

Initial services provided by KTS Owens Thomas included:

  • commercial strategy and advice on exiting a formal partnership
  • business planning and financial modelling to raise finance to secure an exit
  • approaching potential funders and securing finance
  • advice throughout the legal exit from the architectural practice
  • incorporating into a new Limited Company
  • implementing new internal financial control and reporting procedures
  • designing a tax effective remuneration strategy for the directors

We continue to deliver

  • provision of an outsourced payroll bureau service
  • provision of an outsourced management accounting service
  • annual accounting and taxation compliance
  • review and maintenance of effective taxation strategies
  • periodic business and commercial advice
